    For those of you switching from a Storm to a Curve outside the 30 day trial, how did you do it?

    ANY piece of technology is a step on the way.

    My first mobile phone was an analog device that woul just fit my pants pocket. The only valid way to use it was to use it with the car charger connected or the battery went flat in about 10 minutes. Even with the charger it got hot.

    Storm Wars followed by the Attack of the Curves are similar, they are both steps on the way. It is also a question of choice. I bought my 8900 Curve in December. I knew very well that the Storm was available but I chose a phone with a real keyboard.

    Personal preference that's all. Death Star that blows up vs. Millenium Falcon that is very fast. You can work out which I think is which.

    The Storm is a brilliant first effort and once the hardware and software bugs are sorted then this phone has a huge future - if ya like touch screens. RIM polled its main corporate customer base a few months before the Storm rumors started and the feedback they said they got was that corporate America did not want a touch screen BlackBerry. Bravely they made one anyhow.

    This is RIM's main strength imo. If you buy a Pearl, Curve, Bold, 8800WE or a Storm, they all work more or less the same. If any of you Storm users were to pick up my 8900 Curve, you could use it immediately, likewise I could easily use a Storm to about 90% immediately.

    True WinMo phones have a similarity but the OS is so customised by vendors that there are significant differences between models and makes.
    Well said Pete. Very well said.
